Every new member of The Mill joins a ‘club’ class. Each child will be coached to their own ability and supported to reach their full potential.
Beginner classes are 1 hour long and focus on teaching children the basic shapes and movements of gymnastics and are available to all children of full time school age.
Children will always be split into age and ability groups of no more than 10 gymnasts per coach.
Within the hour class, our qualified coaches will lead an active and engaging warm up. They will then move around the various pieces of equipment on offer at The Mill, following a structured program that promotes skill acquisition in a fun and safe environment.
Classes are split by school Key Stage group, below are the classes we currently offer.
